” I’m afraid that some times you’ll play lonely games too. Games you can’t win ‘cause you’ll play against you. All Alone! Whether you like it or not, Alone will be something you’ll be quite a lot. And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants. There are some, down the road between hither and yon, that can scare you so much you...

happy birthday Ms. Monroe<3 ” The truth is I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me.

William Parrish: Trust, responsibility, taking the weight for your...

“I hate the phrase “Hurt people hurt people.” I understand it. And it ‘makes sense’ but aren’t we all hurt? Don’t we all have “something”?
